women in television

With the end of the year comes the onslaught of the “awards” films – you know the ones. The movies that are dripping with desperation to be granted the “best (fill in the blank)” accolades. Beautiful costumes, historical scandals, physical hardships – all the trappings of an Oscar movie. Unfortunately, we’ve had to wait almost […]

happy halloween! {family halloween costume idea}

Now, we all know I’m a huge holiday enthusiast (to put it extremely, extremely lightly), but Halloween has never been high up on my list as far as important days go. I don’t watch scary movies, I cry the second I step into a haunted house, and my Halloween night plans are generally very anti-climactic. […]

As much as I love the summer, the heat wave this year was brutal. Fall couldn’t come soon enough, and though it hasn’t been consistent (the sun came guns blazing Halloween day), I think cooler temperatures have generally come to stay.

a change!

Last week I chopped my hair off! It was a big decision, but I needed a change for a variety of reasons (my hair hasn’t been short for almost 10 years). And with a hair change comes new headshots (welcome to an actor’s life!). I’m waiting to hear back from my representatives which headshots they […]

on my acting career

Whenever I get new headshots taken, I share them in this space; beyond that, my acting career is not something I often talk about here. For whatever reason, I like to keep this ol’ blog of mine separate from that. But, as it is a big, BIG part of my life, I thought maybe I […]

Los Angeles Headshot Photographer: Kennedy

My niece has decided that she wants to be an actress. Though I’m happy she’s following in my footsteps, I know how difficult a career this is and just want to protect her from the negative aspects of it. I’m helping her take the right steps to get started (she currently does choir and performs […]
